not sure of the species, but spotted this one in the broken part of our wharf on a log. it then flew to the beach and walked away from my location. no sounds made, but it was bobbing its tail rapidly.

sharp pic, how big was it

not that big, much smaller than a yellowlegs. He was so fast, it was hard to get a good photo. I must compare the photo to the log he was on for a better idea of size

yes, the diameter of the wood it was perching on would be helpful. I've looked through , "eastern Birds" and can't find one that has that markings. maybe it is an immature.
